If there is one celebrity that in my experience, makes women who want to get themselves into shape say "ooh I'd love to look like her...", it is Jessica Biel.
While it's usually a bad practice to emulate a celebrity's diet or workout patterns, if you're a female trying to get in shape for "beach season" there are still lots of things we can learn and implement from what Jessica Biel has done.
For starters, hopefully we can dispell the old fear that some women - "if I lift weights, won't I get big and bulky like a man?"
As is shown to the right, lifting weights hasn't made her look "like a man" at all.
While she does put time in around the weights, the core structure of her workouts also seems to be interval cardio sessions that gets the heart rate going.
Here is a link to her workouts that feature weights, plyos, and sprint intervals:
The "clean eating" nature of her diet is hopefully something that becomes a consistent theme throughout this site. There really isn't anyone alive (save for the 10% of our population that earns their living as pro athletes in some capacity) that can achieve the body they want while eating garbage regularly.
Here's a quick :30 video interview of her outlining the workouts in preparation for the "Blade" movie role:
Key Takeaway: Even though she has much more time than the average woman to workout, the average woman can still implement some of the same drills, exercises, and nutritional habits to see real changes in your body.
